Haiti - The God of Tough Places, the Lord of Burnt Men
By Father Richard Frechette. Father is both a physician and a Catholic priest, a Passionist. Father tells more about real life incidents than about Haiti in this book. He has carried out his double mission for over twenty-five years, in places of extreme poverty, violence, and natural disasters. I have never read a book that touched my heart so deeply. Where does one human being get such courage? He risks his life again and again. How does he maintain his hope? He says, "Who can doubt the power of Heaven's light, a light sometimes beaten to weakness and submission, feeble in the darkness, and nearly gone - but which, St. John promises, may spend a season as ember, but it will spark and reignite and burn brightly, never to be overcome?" All profits on the sale of this book will be donated to Father Richard for his kids. Softcover, 124 pages.
